CU System
Serving the Underserved conference speakers announced
NEW YORK (4/1/09)--The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions confirmed the keynote presenters for its upcoming 35th Annual Conference on Serving the Underserved, which will be held June 11-13 in Phoenix. Confirmed keynote speakers include:
* Donna J. Gambrell, director of the U.S. Treasury Department's Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund; * Errol T. Louis, columnist for the New York Daily News, television commentator, and former community development credit union (CDCU) organizer; and * Ellen Seidman, senior policy advisor at ShoreBank, a community development bank.
With as much as $400 million available the next 18 months, the CDFI Fund is poised for the greatest expansion in its history, and Gambrell has played a leading role in the fund’s high profile within the Obama Administration, the federation said. Having served as deputy director of consumer protection and community affairs in the Division of Supervision and Consumer Protection at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Gambrell has led initiatives related to reaching underserved populations; provided guidance to consumers on issues such as subprime and predatory lending; and increased the public's understanding of and confidence in the financial system. A former CDCU organizer and federation program officer, Louis is knowledgeable about issues affecting low-income people and communities. As a regular guest on “Lou Dobbs” and other CNN programs, Louis gave political analyses to national television audiences throughout the recent presidential campaign. Louis is a twice-weekly columnist for the New York Daily News, and hosts the “Morning Show” on radio station AM 1600 WWRL, a weekday political talk show. Seidman also is chairman of the board of directors of the Center for Financial Services Innovation, which helps financial services providers serve underserved consumers. The federation’s conference will offer breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and a site visit to a local CDCU, the $61 million-in-assets, First American CU in Casa Grande, Ariz.
